Heathrow Airport was closed to all incoming flights on Thursday Morning

Swedes caught up in chaos after London terror alert

The Scandinavian Airline, SAS, cancelled all its flights to London on Thursday morning, after police in the United Kingdom announced they had foiled a major terrorist plot to detonate bombs on up to 10 airplanes in mid-air.

Other services to Sweden from the English capital were also cancelled and extra security was put in place at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport.

British Police said they thought the intended targets were flights to the US, and more than twenty people were arrested in the London area and in Birmingham.

The media have reported Swedes have been caught up in massive queues of passengers at airports in Britain after a decision was made to ban almost all hand-luggage.
